So tonight was Ginny's graduation from our one puppy class It was a pre-requisite that any one getting a Ruby puppy had to attend obedience classes at least weekly until they are 6 months old.
This particular class is one I've done with all my dogs, and its lots of good fun and lays a great foundation for any competitive or pet obedience classes in the future.
Of all 9 puppies, only ONE lives local to me, and so this puppy (Paris/Rayna) graduated tonight as well! And Marshall (was Victor) who is owned by my best friend and fellow labby lover (she also owns Ruby's brother, Monte) drove every week to go to this class. So of the 17 puppies in this class, large or small...3 are from Ruby's litter.
And guess what?
We got all the metals! LOL (felt sorry for all the others, almost!)
Puppies (who are 15 weeks old now!) had to do a heeling pattern over a jump, round a pylon, stand for 10 seconds and stand for a quick exam, as well as a recall to front, and a 15 second sit and 30 second down.
Thats Mary Lou and Marshall, with silver, Ginny and I who got the top score and Mark and Rayna (and her pretty girl sit) who were bronze! We were only separated by .5 point and there was a run off.
It was a lot of fun! Nothing serious at this point!
Spoiled? I think NOT!
OMG, that's fantastic! Congratulations to you and their new families...lots of work (and lots of brains!) went into those medals, for sure!!! How cool that they give out medals! I haven't ever seen a puppy class (or any obedience class for that matter) that did that before! 8)

I asked that they not give us any metals, we don't need the encouragement as much...I felt bad.
